This free app is the user interface that works with the PantherTec KAT System.
Train Any Movement. Anywhere. Anytime with just the KAT and your phone. The KAT is a portable training system consisting of several small wear-anywhere devices and a mobile app. It is a tool used by movement educators to influence movement by allowing the wearer to self-correct.
You must have a KAT System to do KAT training. If you do not have the KAT device and license, KAT training is not possible. To order a KAT System, go to the PantherTec website www.panthertec.net

More about KAT:
The body’s sensory-motor system consists of a network of pathways that send information from the body (via mechanoreceptors) and the environment (via visual receptors) to the brain. The brain interprets and prioritizes those signals to create a ‘model’ of where the body is in space and time. During movement, the brain commands the muscles to move in a certain way based on this ‘model’. When the brain’s own model of the body is flawed, the movement itself becomes flawed.
- There is no ‘knowledge’ in the KAT System. Movement Educators such as clinicians and coaches provide the expertise.
- Why KAT? Your client's think are doing ‘that’, but instead, they are doing ‘this’.
- KAT learns a position or movement WITH the wearer, and then teaches it back with beeps and tactile feedback, in real time.
The patented Kinesthetic Awareness Training system allows the wearer to self-correct the brain's model in real time.
